Re: polycarbonate window thickness?

Which product is strong enough to stand on? This is a vague statement,- 'depends upon thickness and the area the material spans.



I regularly stand on this 3/8" Lexan (polycarbonate) at 205lbs; however, I do not stand on my other 1/4" hatches. Maybe they could take it,- I just don't! The 3/8" cover on this companionway slide covers an opening that is half the size (in area) of the Lexan cover.
